Festivals and Workshops
Avenues: Exploring Band and Jazz Methods is a professional development opportunity designed to review, stimulate, and explore instrumental music education. This summer workshop, now in its eighth year, offers music educators the chance to gather, communicate, and collaborate at Brandon University. In addition to presentations and round-table discussions, the two days include active participation, conducting activities, personalized instruction, and informal gatherings. Workshops will provide opportunities to develop band and jazz rehearsal techniques, conducting skills, jazz pedagogy, repertoire selection and preparation, instructional warmups, and improvisation. Avenues participants are asked to bring along an instrument and a conducting baton.
The Brandon University Clarinet Festival is an exciting annual event that brings together professional musicians, music educators, clarinet enthusiasts, and students of all levels. The festival events will include workshops, performances, product displays, masterclasses, a mass festival clarinet choir for all participants, and more!
